Blocks from Historic Anacostia, the fairly new residential community, Sheridan Station, serves as Washington, D.C.'s first LEED Platinum certified apartment building, and now it's been named a finalist in the Urban Land Institute’s (ULI) 2016 Global Awards for Excellence. Sheridan Station is the only D.C. area project chosen for this year's prestigious international award's final stage.
The Southeast development houses the city's largest privately owned residential solar panel array and a stormwater cistern. There is also a 10,000-square-foot vegetative green roof. There are a total of 104 residential units in the development, taking up 135,000 square feet. Some of the development's amenities include a 55-car parking garage, bike storage, and a fitness center.
At the annual ULI Washington Real Estate Trends Conference, Sheridan Station won the Juror’s Choice Award for being what Vicki Davis, president of Urban Atlantic and ULI member, described as "a financial, environmental, and social success."
Last year, Shaw's City Market at O development was named a winner of ULI's Global Awards for Excellence. We'll wait and see if another Washington, D.C. residential development is able to take the prize as well. The winners won't be announced until October.
